[MOC] Land Rover Defender 90

Recommended Posts

Hello!

Approximately 9 month ago I built this model for Moscow Brickfest 09/11/2019 for trophy pro racing. Sorry for such late publication :sceptic:

On this event model awarded in design competition (the model turned out to be quite heavy for fast overcoming obstacles)

The chassis is pretty similar to chassis of my older model - Jeep Wrangler Rubicon. Main changes in steering system.

How are the windows, wind shield and roof connected? All the parts feel flimsy as hell!

Thank you for comment! Rear windows sides may looks pretty flimsy, but they are reliably pressed by top window beam, only rear side may fall of from hard vibration and direct touch :) Windshield is fixed by two 4 l system bars below and by two modified plates to roof on the top. For this reason windshield is fixed very well. Roof is fixed by 2 pins to the chassis, by two modified plates to the windshield, and by two supports axles, which is easily replacable with two 3 l pins. Roof is fixed really reliably.

I always appreciate a good Defender. I think you captured the looks really well, and it seems to have pretty good performance also. Well done, I like it :thumbup:
